The stone foundations of this house had seriously eroded away, leaving the side of the house unstable. The verandah front corner had also dropped. The foundations would have to be completely replaced on this side of the house.
The cost to temporarily prop the side of the house, remove the crumbling stonework, prepare new foundations and make good was approximately $25,000.
An Independent Property Inspection at $400 would have save this purchaser a lot of money and heartache.
